Today I learned about Ed Skoog, who says tremendous things – like:
A sentence is a living thing and that’s the medium that we work in as poets. When I think of sentences, I don’t just think about grammar and copyediting. I think of the medium in which we prove we’re living.
While I’m diving into Skoog’s words, you can get the full Gwarlingo story on him here
ps: Elissa Washuta’s review of Ed Skoog’s Rough Day on goodreads goes like this:
I’ve never read a book of poems like this before–I really couldn’t put it down because I wanted to know where the tension was going to go. The lines are full of surprise in ways I don’t think I’ve ever experienced. I want to read it a hundred more times and I probably will.
